Just mess around with it,
Just mess around,
It ain't worth the fear
But just mess around
A message I received
That morning in my flat
Said that you were back
With the midnight-flight
Just to mess around.

My mother used to teach
Daddy flew away
I didn't go abroad
Till I was her age.
My sister was 19
And "we won't move from here", we said
"So you'd better know
That you are here
Just to mess around".

My sister walks right by your side,
and my good friend Jack,
he is now your pal.
The sun, the moon, the sea, the land
are at your command,
on your bank account.

I had to run away
No future for me here
I took the morning train
And nobody cared
I travelled for some time, the devil on my side
Kicked my stomach hard
And I forgot
'Bout my dirty land.

I will go for some time, you won the land, the sun,
but time still goes on...

Don't mess around with me,
Don't mess around
It ain't worth the fear
Don't you mess around
I don't have many things, just an empty sack
But this time
I'll kick your stomach hard
If you mess around.


from Birds, released January 15, 2017
